[HTML3]Howdy. Rick, here. I don’t usually do many “introspective” posts. But this seemed warranted. (Although, I’ve been hesitating to post this, because I keep thinking that Cami Kaos and Dr. Normal are going to realize the error of their ways. But given that they still haven’t said, “We were just joking,” I’m going to have to go ahead and run with this.)
In case you didn’t get the chance to tune into my appearance on Strange Love Live’s year end recap, I wanted to let you know that we had a couple of announcements. Read More
It was August 2009. I had just wrapped up an episode of Strange Love Live celebrating the second birthday of this here blog. I think I was still even sitting on that now iconic couch when Dr. Normal piped up.
“You should do a podcast,” he said. Read More
Merry Christmas Eve! Why are you sitting in front of the computer? Oh. Well okay then. We might as well entertain you with a special holiday edition of memePDX.
This week on memePDX, Cami Kaos and I discuss Second Porch getting funding, Crazy Neighbor, Microsoft patent infringement, NORAD Santa Tracker, and 30 hour day. Read More
Hey, it’s Thursday. Kind of. A little bit still. And that means it’s time for another memePDX.
This week, Cami Kaos and I are a little preoccupied. But in a good way. I mean, in a charitable way. Won’t someone please think of the children? Oh sorry. Anyway, memePDX is a special episode, this week. And it will get you all prepared for 30 hour day. What’s 30 hour day you ask? It’s like memePDX, only like 100 times longer. And it’s also a 30 hour livestreaming telethon that starts this Friday afternoon. No sleep. All for charities like Free Geek, Oregon Food Bank, and Toys for Tots.
Are you ready for 30 hour day? Watch this. You will be. (Yoda voice:) You will be. Read More
Where has the week gone? It seems like just yesterday that we were regaling in the exploits of the Portland tech scene. Well, like it or not, it’s Thursday. And that means you get a new episode of memePDX. It’s like fruitcake. Only less edible.
This week, Cami Kaos and I discuss JanRain’s $3.25 million, NedSpace, 30 hour day on The Square and TreeUp TweetUp, Apple buying Lala, Google, and DARPA balloons. Read More
It’s Thursday! Here’s hoping you’re still not nursing a turkey or tofurky hangover. And that you’ve managed to do something with those leftovers.
Whatever the case, you deserve a little break. So why not take a few minutes to revel in memePDX? This week, Cami Kaos and I talk about Abraham Hyatt joining ReadWriteWeb, e. coli in your Twitter, Crappy Santas, the Winter Coders’ Social, Corvallis Startup Weekend, RIP CrunchPad, and the Google Phone.

For those of you around the Portland area and around the US, I hope you’re enjoying your Thanksgiving break. If you’re shopping today, good luck. Here’s hoping you’re doing that from in front of your computer.
As you might imagine, startup tech news in the Silicon Forest has been a little slow today. Likely from a good dose of tryptophan. But I wanted to give you something to tide you over until it picks up again.
Unfortunately, all I’ve got is Dr. Normal and Meagan Kate making fun of Cami Kaos and me by doing a parody of memePDX for Crazy Talk. So that’s what you’re getting. Read More
This is one of the best Thursdays of the year. No, not because you get another episode of memePDX. You get those every week, silly. No, you see, it’s one of the best Thursdays of the year because it’s Thanksgiving! Turkey Day! And all of that stuff.
So maybe you need a break from cooking, maybe you’re tired of parades and football, or maybe you’re just looking for somewhere to sit and digest. Whatever the case, Cami Kaos and I are here to help make your Thanksgiving just that much more festive. Read More
Well, well, well. It’s another Thursday. Kinda. And that means it’s time for another episode of memePDX. Lucky number 13, in fact.
So what did we cover? Well, a whole bunch of stuff. But we’ve got one favor to ask. Just pretend it’s Thursday, pre-Ignite Portland and pre-Back Fence PDX. Okay? Okay.
This week, Cami Kaos and I talk about Ignite Portland 7 and Backfence PDX on the same night, Supercomputing 2009, ccSync, Tim O’Reilly on the war for the Web, Wikipedia’s annual fund drive, and Obama has never tweeted. And of course, get well soon to MetaFilter’s Matt Haughey. Read More
Well, well, well. It kind of snuck up on you a bit, didn’t it? I know. These things happen. But it’s Thursday and that means it’s time for another episode of memePDX, the weekly podcast about the hottest tech news in Portland… and beyond.
This week, Cami Kaos and Rick Turoczy discuss startup lessons from MioWorks and SplashCast, Microsoft layoffs, new podcasts from Dr. Normal and Cort & Fatboy, Google and Rupert Murdoch, Google acquiring AdMob and Gizmo5, and Google Dashboard. Oh and Cami is wearing a Bac’n shirt, this week. Read More
